leader harry reid recently told a local pbs station in nevada. "let's be realistic," he said. "in the senate we're going to do what we think can get through the house, and i'm not going to go through a bunch of gyrations just to say that we've done something. if we're really legislators, the purpose of it is to pass legislation." senator reid did not show the same kind of hesitation with another moral issue, relief for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to c
harry reid said he was reassured they're moving away from their all-or-nothing proposition. but overall what this is trying to do is give the house the ability to pass an extension and say to the house or senate if they don't move further, we've done our job, now it's up to you guys. there's definitely some posturing involved. >> at a time when we're seeing so many positive indicators, good news on the housing front, jobless claims are down, this kind of kicking the can down the road does not seem to be the kind of thing that would reassure small businesses or markets, wall street, anybody. >> well, look, it's better than not kicking the can down the road. it's better than having that debate right now because i think everybody on wall street and everybody who is in business thinks this is the silliest debate we could possibly be having right now. so to try to tie it to a budget proposal which is probably long overdue as we know, four years, is probably not a bad idea, but it's not nearly the same as not having this debate at all. so markets hate that. bankers hate that. businessmen hate

on this, on the floor of the united states senate, but i don't think that senator harry reid even brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up for election in two years in states were the president received fewer than 42% of the votes. and he doesn't want his democrats to have to choose between their own constituents and the president's positions. >> what about immigration? seems too me that is something in the interest of the republican party that you-all would like to see get passed, some kind of immigration reform. will that happen this year? >> i mean, i'm child of immigrants. that is the history of this country. immigration is good and important for our country. legal immigration needs to really be modernized. marco rubio is working on that we need to find ways. we are educating so many people and then telling them to leave the country who are from other countries, go back, with he don't want you here. we have issues of labor that we need additional labor. we need to deal with immigration and i think we will, candy. >> quickly, you're on the committee that will list
or in fact have harry reid or nancy pelosi come out and attack them all the time if you're trying to get something done that demands an agreement with the other side. bob? >> first of all, charlie, one thing you have to is president obama does not control harry reid or nancy pelosi they are more than anxious -- >> despite how he might wish. >> yeah, in willing to come out and attack republicans on their own spontaneously and with sincere conviction. >> rose: do you think that's helpful? >> no, i think it doesn't work and i think he's got a real problem with that. but i think of very interesting question here is what are his frustrations in the job and it's alwa harto get goodata on that but i think one of his frustrations is in the first term he inherited that financial crisis and he did a good job. we now have an economy not just on the verge of stability but on the verge of takeoff and you never get credit as president for what you kept from happening which would have been a depression and he knows he spent so much energy on that sand he knows in the midst ofit he got health care refor
majority leader harry reid seemed to clarify his position somewhat. in a statement he said, "i am committed to ensuring the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. all options should be on the table." well, that sounds a little bit better. but there should be no hedging on this issue whatsoever. especially from democrats. because if they side with the president of the united states think about what president obama has done for the progressive movement in this country in the democratic party. how can you not stand with him on this? how much more information do these lawmakers need? have we not covered it enough? other democratic senators with high ratings from the national rifle association have also refused to say if they support the president's package. max baucus of montana, senator heidi heitkamp of north dakota, senator johnson of south dakota. senator donnelley of indiana. senator begich of alaska, senator manchin of west virginia, senator tester of montana. however, senator mark warner spoke out in favo
term extension, are putting the burden on the shoulders of harry reid to pass it. republicans are sick and tired of getting the full attention in american politics. republicans do not always want to be the story, so they want to make the story the senate. that won't be easy to do, harry reid is very adept at saying no thanks, ewant to do my project. but the republicans were humbled on the fiscal cliff, and they want the toss it to the senate. >> if i read a lot of the report correctly, it kind of seems like the republican leadership planned, of course, the speakers's planned to retreat the talk their members down, to talk them into a calmer position, from language, how you talk to women and minority voters and to the debt ceiling to some of the other broader political strategy things. you were there, is that kind of a fair read? >> yeah, you could kind of see them back away from some of the more extreme positions as the days went on. you heard -- paul ryan, yesterday, was explaining to reporters what he had been saying, first saying the three-month extension was on the table. they were
. what has harry reid rand democrats done in the senate? absolutely nothing. how many days since they passed a budget? >> 1,357. >> 1,357 days since democrats have passed a budget in the united states senate. >> let's talk about that lack of leadership so many people have criticized the president for not reaching out and being a leader and bringing in republicans to really get to know them on every level so they can perhaps negotiate a deal. president obama took a moment to address the criticism within the beltway he hasn't spend enough time developing personal relationships with members of cog. >> most people who know me know i'm a pretty friend lip guy and i like a good party. personal relationships are important and obviously, i can always do a better job. the nice thing is now that my girls are getting older, they don't want to spend that much time with me anyway. i'll be probably calling around looking for somebody to play cards with me or something because i'm getting kind of lonely in this big house. >> a quick search, just for the record, shows over the president's first

to convince harry reid a democrat from nevada and also a pro gun democrat to bring a bill up. but he has indicated in some local press back in nevada that he's not going to do that any time soon. he said the first thing on his agenda is to bring up immigration reform. so after the president is inaugurated, if you will, they are going to probably move to some wrap up stuff and then go straight to immigration reform. the question is when will the senate go to it. also leader reid said he won't move anything that can't get through the house. the house is controlled by republicans. and they are mostly pro gun caucus then it sounds to me like the senate won't take up the issue of gun safety or gun control any time soon. so we'll have to wait and see what kind of pressure the white house puts on their own democratic leaders. >> as we heard earlier, obama and members of his administration will be launching a campaign style push on this issue in the coming weeks. why is public support so key? >> basically, the president has the bully pulpit and that's someone no one in the senate or house, they

with harry reid, the white house stepped in with the vice president to broker a deal. what's going on here, karen? is the president playing a game of chicken? will the white house change its mind? or is this truly a line in the sand? >> i think it's a real line in the sand. the president has been very consistent and serious from the beginning on this. i think there's a couple of goals. congress can't have it both ways. you have to act responsibly and pay your bills. that's part of why i think the president said if you want me to be in charge, fine, i'll take care of it, but that's not how our government is set up. so i think clearly the president is not going to back back down. the last time we had a shutdown, there's not shut down a piece over here or there. when you shut it down, there are very serious consequences for the american people very immediately when you do that. >> among the things we talked about, the bipartisan policy center also says that the debt ceiling standoff at 2011 cost taxpayers $19 billion in extra interest payments so far, and we didn't even default. so what's the
